Python 2 will live on for a long time. Other than promising to bug-fix
maintain Python 2.7 for much longer than usual, which we've already done, what
specifically should we do? A no-new-feature Python 2.8 doesn't make sense,
and I'm not convinced that a new-feature Python 2.8 really helps folks who are
stuck on Python 2 for whatever reason.
